Deepavali, the festival of lights
brings a lot of happiness,
bonding, feasting and fun
unique, exciting part of celebration
are the fireworks- colour and sound
of which some just can't have enough!
The very fireworks
that give so much pleasure
if handled carelessly, unsupervised
or in excess...
could be source of tragedy and sadness
with little ones losing an eye
a limb or sustaining 30% burns...
Similarly, the social media
can be real fun
a source of pleasure and bonding
yet, if handled wrongly
carelessly and in excess...
could also result in tragedy
The likes, comments,emoticons
that gave so much pleasure & thrill
could cause sadness and depression
when they suddenly slow down or disappear...
The happy exchanges with strangers
exciting and fun filled
could lose its charm, become nightmare
when trolled, pursued
The trick then is discipline
enjoyment in moderation
be it fireworks or the social media
keeping it on a leash, in control
not allowing it to turn Frankenstein!
